This is a poinsettia plant that I bought at the local grocery store. It's the small one and I love the color. Deep red, just right for Christmas. This frog is in my lavender bathroom. This is a vintage ornament in his basket. It says: Merry Christmas!! He is cute.
I WON Miss Rhea's 100th Post Give Away. She is a talented pastry maker. Her beautiful treats look REAL....and they are not.

Miss Rhea was very generous and sent 3 cupcakes, 3 petite fours and 2 little sugar cubes with a flower on top. I didn't take a photo of those, sorry. She also gave me some pretty vintage wall paper to use in a craft.

Don't you just want to lick the frosting??!! I do :)

They are in my china cabinet and look so pretty. I will be using them for Tea parties as lovely decorations. THANK YOU SO MUCH RHEA......I LOVE THEM!!!
I did get the mantle decorated and will post again after Thanksgiving. Are you going shopping on Friday??? I think I might. We will be getting the Christmas tree on Sunday. We go and chop one at the tree farm. I love the smell of fresh cuts trees. I always put white lights on the tree. What color light do you put on???

Oh I got my tree! I love it. Thank you so much. It's on right now. I sent your payment so you should have it any day now! Thanks for the extra goodies!

Have a super Thanksgiving. Can't wait to see your tree all decorated.
